Over the past couple of weeks (read months), I have talked a lot about our sweet love story. From our not so cute “meet cute,” to our falling in love, to each of us figuring out the other was their one, to the day he got down on one knee. I love our love story, it is my favorite one by far and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with my sweet man. But before I can do that, we have to plan that wedding thing. Lol.
October 6, 2018. The best day ever, well so far. It was a wonderful and busy and amazing and exciting day. But let’s go back a couple of days before.
The weekend we got engaged my parents were coming into town, so the whole week before I was running around trying to make sure our apartment was perfect for when they arrived. This was the first time my parents were visiting me in Seattle and the first time they were visiting Riley and I in our home together. There were many loads of laundry, vacuuming, mopping and oven cleaning (why did I think my mom would look INSIDE the oven?!). My parents are by no means critical, but I always feel this pressure when they come to visit.
I realize that I have not posted in the past couple of months, but I would like to think it was for good reason. I decided at the beginning of this year that I wanted to make the blog a priority, but I also wanted to give myself the grace to not post when the situation warranted. Well, the situation warranted about three months ago. So lets time travel back to February of 2019 and talk about the past few months.
The beginning of our relationship and a light in my life for a while. I talked about this in my 2018 post, but the beginning of 2018 (and really into the middle of the year) was rough for me. I talked about our Not So Meet Cute. Now I am going to tell you about how this new relationship was always something I could count on to be good. It was something that made the hard times just a little better.
To be honest, I was a bit nervous about posting this. I do try to be open, but also still want parts of my life to be private. However, this is a story that is just so close to my heart that I want to share.
